Artist-in-Residence Programmes

Ronan O'Raghallaigh(C) Goethe-Institut Irland

A studio space as well as an exchange with other artists from all around the world – this is what an artist can expect as an Artist in Residence.  Every year artists leave their homes to spend time in a different country and culture and return with new ideas and inspiration.

What requirements are to be met and how to apply can be found in this overview of German and Irish artists’ houses. However, we do not recommend these organisations more than others, on the contrary, we encourage you to research further residency programmes in Ireland and Germany suitable to your interest and needs.

We also talked to artists after their residencies and asked them about their experiences.
